Finally doing it

After years of talking about it, we have finally decided to pull up stakes in CO and head east to water!  We have finally decided to move Mountain Acres Farm to Missouri!  We will be located near Ava, MO on an old dairy farm.  This farm hasn’t seen a lot of love for quite some time, so much work is needed on buildings and just general clean up.  There is a pretty decent farm house, an old milking parlor in need of some TLC, and several old barns in various states of disrepair.  Our hope is to save many of the buildings.

The farm is about 230 acres and is about 50% woods, 50% pasture.  There are several ponds and springs on the property.  Our plan is to apply permaculture principles and eventually graze cattle, sheep, and goats.  We also intend to raise pigs (ala Joel Salatin) and both broiler and layer chickens.

Stay with us for the journey from the mountains of CO to the hollers of MO!
